Objective: Behaviors associated with dementia are a concern for both patient and caregiver and continue to lack theoretically-driven, empirically tested interventions. The objective of this paper is to review the Need-driven Dementia-compromised Behavior (NDB) Model and research currently in progress. The NDB model is a theory developed to explain dementia behaviors and thus provide a basis for deriving intervention strategies from a nursing perspective. Design, Sample, Concepts and Methods: Based on empirical studies of phenomena such as wandering, aggression, and problematic vocalizations, this comprehensive multi-factorial model is presently undergoing empirical testing and validation in a trio of projects connected through an interactive research project grant mechanism. Methods include repeated measures time and event sampling, videography, environmental measures (physical and social), telephone interviews, staff and family questionnaires, within approx. 30 nursing home sites in two large urban centers in the US mid-west and south. Thus the purposes of this paper are 1) to describe the NDB model and its development and 2) to explicate measurement challenges encountered, and solutions proposed, in testing the model. Conclusions and Implications: Use of the NDB model has opened promising avenues for nursing intervention with this vulnerable population.
